With Tennessee Football just days away, we're getting fired up by remembering the Vols' greatest season.
The 1998 Championship season was a big year for the Vols, and an even bigger year in the US.
Also known as the year of the Tiger, 1998 made a roaring sound in our nation, especially in music.
The Goo Goo Dolls rocked the charts with their crossover hit song "Iris." Another classic, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," soothed our souls and made us feel. Then Brittany Spears hit the charts with "Hit Me Baby One More Time."
The 1998 Oscars were a career high for actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck for their role in Goodwill Hunting. Titanic-mania took over as the flick became the highest grossing film of all time, raking in more than $580 million dollars domestically and counting. And as one onscreen drama continued, 'Seinfield' wrapped it's final episode. More than 76 million viewers joined to say goodbye.
In politics, life on Capital Hill was pretty chaotic as the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal continued. But in terms of the economy, it was fairly stable, with unemployment at 4.5 percent.
And in one particularly noticeable historic moment, Senator John Glenn went back to space and took a lap around the Earth in the shuttle Discovery.
All in all, 1998 had a lot of major moments. But for any huge Vols fan, that final win will always take the cake.
